Switch Up Your Beauty Routine with These Products for Fall
New Drops for Fall 2021
Cooler weather is coming, at least for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, and that means it's a great time to reassess your beauty and skincare routines. Summer brings heat and humidity, but winter calls for extra hydration all over. Choose products that boost and lock in your skin's moisture, while reducing irritants like exfoliants and retinoids.
We've rounded up a collection of newly launched products you might want to try, but as always, take care as you experiment. Ease into new products slowly to give your hair, skin, or body time to adjust. And if you're looking for new products for warm weather, check out these products we featured for Summer 2021.

Finish off your look with a new scent, like Alien Goddess from Mugler. Warm florals hang heavy, evoking an extraterrestrial garden on a hot summer night.

“I am extremely proud to be the face of the new Mugler fragrance. To me, Alien Goddess is a manifesto. It urges us to be wholly ourselves, to brandish what makes us unique with pride. Beyond that, this new dazzling creation gives us the strength to find the best within ourselves, whoever we are, in order to accomplish extraordinary things with a positive impact on the world and those around us. It’s a powerful message of kindness, hope and joy.”
